Forum: freecache Subject: freecache and mozilla/getright.

Hey there,

Wanted to mention this again, cos it turns out to be quite a significant problem. When I'm using Mozilla 1.4 on my Windows machine, I just don't seem to be able to get Freecache files, for the following reason:

- I have GetRight on my machine, which is a download manager (it doesn't try to swarm with multiple logins, it just grabs any downloads.) As mentioned previously, GetRight doesn't work properly with FreeCache - it just locks up after a few K has been downloaded.

- Now, normally, I could get round this by right-clicking on the download link and selecting 'Save As'. Unfortunately, while that works in Internet Explorer, since it tries to save the ZIP, in Mozilla, it ends up trying to save etree-download.php or similar.

So this means I actually need to load Internet Explorer specifically whenever I want to get anything from the Archive.

Is there anything that can be done about this?

Thanks,
Simon.

this will be changing very soon - in fact, it is already done with movies (you can 'save as' without downloading download.php).
